Planning a wedding is hard work and once you get into the whole process, it’s easy to see why it takes the average couple a year and a half to get it all done.

After you’ve picked the date and sent out the cards, choosing the color scheme of the wedding comes next, which will help decide all those other details. The flowers, the decorations and even the bridesmaid dresses usually center around that choice.

Then, choosing a dress and color that will look flattering on all the ladies who have said “yes” to being in your bridal party begins.

It’s been a long standing tradition to have all the bridesmaids look the same – from the exact hairstyle to the cut of the dress. That’s likely a big reason why so many jokes are made about all the dresses in your closet from weddings past that you’ll never wear again.

Because we all know there’s no way you’re going to wear that satin lavender strapless dress again.

Thankfully, when it comes to planning weddings, we don’t have to rely on the latest trends coming to us from magazines because Pinterest has made the whole process so much easier. Taking a look at the top pins on the curation site will help narrow down what you really want for your special day and it seems twinning bridesmaid dresses are no longer the style.

Looking at the top trending bridesmaid dresses on Pinterest, it’s so clear that personal, individual bridesmaid dresses are the new obsession and we’re so here for that.

According to Pinterest, mismatched bridesmaid dresses are now in and the trend is up 50 percent from last year.


“Brides are looking to be more flexible, picking a color palette or hue and have bridesmaids wear an outfit that makes them most comfortable versus picking a specific matching color and style,” according to Pinterest, and we love it.

No more worrying about how you’re going to rock the strapless dress or where you’re going to find more closet space for the satin dresses you’re never going to wear again.
